Excerpt: This brings back the Old Fashioned 'Stereo' systems from the past-Good FM tuner+Phono input+Tape Deck input+Extra inputs+simple front panel controls like the old days( I mean before multi-channel ). This replaced a 7 year old Denon that blew from my second-system, which I don't need anything other than Stereo on.
Pros: Easy to read display, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Sub-woofer Out
Excerpt: Great system for basic hi-fi sound. I use it to play CDs, Ipod, and FM. Very high quality sound. The controls are logical and easy to use. I bought my first Yamaha receiver in 1977, and remarkably, the design and operation of this model was very reminiscent of my first Yamaha. The Pure Direct sound feature still sets the standard!
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I had a Yamaha CR620 Receiver that I bought in March of 1978. It finally died a month shy of its 35th birthday. Impressed with the Yamaha's longevity, I went looking for one to replace it. I wanted something not too complicated that would incorporate some modern technology but also play FM radio, turntable, tape deck, and CD player. I did some research on line and went to a dealer and asked about the r-s300. He said that would be the perfect replacement and he was right.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Appearance, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
